AAAGUCCI1

After months of build-up and anticipation, Gucci’s Chime for Change concert, named Sound of Change Live, finally took place this weekend at Twickenham Stadium in London. The gig, which is part of a global charity campaign to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment, was a star-studded affair with some of the world’s biggest music performers on the bill and Hollywood’s A-list hitting the stage as special guest presenters. Beyoncé Knowles was the night’s headline act and did not disappoint with her hit-packed set. She performed all of her biggest tracks, as well as a beautiful rendition of Etta James’ At Last, with rapper husband Jay-Z coming on as a surprise guest to perform his segment of their 2003 global smash Crazy In Love. Other star name performers at Chime for Change included Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine, Haim, John Legend, Timbaland, Rita Ora and Jessie J, as well as special surprise guests Mary J Blige and Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon. Hollywood’s elite also showed their support for the cause by turning presenters for the evening. These included Madonna, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Jessica Chastain, James Franco, Freida Pinto and Salma Hayek.

Gucci Lego Clutch

Legos are great for entertaining people, kids and adults alike. They make cool decorations for office walls as well. Now, thanks to the creative folks at agabag, they make awesome handbags, bracelets and rings. agabag took creativity to the next level with their Lego clutches and jewelry. Their Chanel Lego clutch was a winner so they’ve decided to pay homage to another fashion brand with the Tribute Gucci Clutch. The Gucci clutch is the replica of the regular clutch bag except it is made entirely of Legos.

The carefully handcrafted clutch is Lego’s on the outside and a mesh, cotton inside. Cute and a really rare accessory, this clutch bag makes for the perfect gift for a special someone. The ego creations don’t only stop at clutches. Visit the Etsy agabag site to see the assortment of rings, keychains and brooches. These aren’t your average bags. Check the pictures below and let me know what you think in a comment below.

Gucci launches a new global campaign for girls and women’s empowerment at TED2013, led by Frida Giannini, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Salma Hayek Pinault. CHIME FOR CHANGE, founded by Gucci, is a new global campaign to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment. Considering what the country went through in the past month and I found this a very touching video and campaign for this past Women’s Day!
